- Yahoo is beginning its long promised upgrade to the Photos section.
Folders are now called albums and if you upload a photo, please make
sure you have made an album for yourself first. The photos must go in
specific albums. The new feature will allow you to change the order of
photographs and the first photo will also show on the album cover. The
upgrade is not complete at this time but changes will start showing up.
When you upload a photo (gif or jpeg only) Yahoo automaticaly creates
two sizes of your photo. Note that if you do not need a full size
photo (you generally only need this to show detail like printed type)
please delete the full size version after you have completed the
upload. To do this click on the thumbnail. The screen size photo will
appear. On the top bar will show a button for the full size photo.
Click on this and the full version will start loading. There will be a
button saying delete full size version only. Click on it, confirm delete.
Please also note that photos that are a year old or so and refer to an
old post, are normally deleted by the moderators unless a member
requests that they not be.
